The durable glass made by Corning has been applied to smartphones and even ATM machines previously, however now the company is set to expand its offerings by releasing the 'Gorilla Glass SR+' -- a smartwatch.

The company's director, Scott Forester, spoke of the new product by saying, "Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ delivers a superior combination of properties that is not available in any other material today -- it is in a class of its own." In saying this, he considers not only the protective qualities of the durable glass, but also the superior outdoor readability and the longer battery life that results from implementing it into the medium of a smartwatch.

In addition to keeping the device from shattering, Corning's durable glass is incredibly scratch-resistant, meaning that consumers can get a longer life out of their purchase without having to put up with unsightly damages.
